I LOVE these Kids!

"There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class. As such, I don't expect many of you to appreciate the subtle science and exact art that is potion-making. However, for those select few... Who possess, the predisposition... I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death." —Professor Snape

My kids watched this with me in the car. They didn't understand why anyone would be upset over the family either. Our family is extremely diverse, however, so it just wouldn't be something they would notice or care about.

 Thay was such a sweet commercial. The little girl wanted to keep her Daddy's heart healthy so she poured Cheerios on his chest. My grandkids thought it was cute. We didn't think anything else except that it was so cute.

Then I read that it was "controversial". Controversial? Nitwits,morons. Back to the 1950's I guess .

My daughter and I just watched it.

Very powerful, very true.

Tears.  For those who are so ignorant that they think the color of some one's skin should matter.  For those who have to deal with the complete ignorance of others.

Applauding the children in this video.  Strong, intelligent, kind and caring children who will grow up to carry that strong character in to their adult years.

Kids get it.  I love the end when they speak directly to the people the commercial reflected.  That was healing for me.
